20×24 sq ft Storage Building Turned Tiny Home for $50K


Nan got in touch with us to show off her awesome 20×24 storage building that she was able to transform into a tiny house rental with the help of a family friend “jack of all trades.”

She said the majority of the $50K spent on the conversion went to installing a new water system and retaining wall, but regardless, the results are stunning! The interior has one bedroom and it all has a beautiful modern farmhouse feel. Check it out below.

There’s a covered carport that also houses the laundry.

From Nan:

This tiny house isn’t complete yet, but the tenant was anxious to move in. I’m waiting on new windows. It began as a 20 x 24 sq ft storage building built on a slab. It was gutted and plumbing and electricity were added. Walls were built around a bedroom and a bathroom. It all came together for around $50K. A good bit of money was spent correcting a water issue and installing a retainer wall. It has a new septic tank although it sits beside an existing cabin. The County Health Dept required that I add an additional one. The laundry room is built inside the connected carport. It has a stackable laundry center. Once new windows are installed, the remaining siding will be applied. It’s amazing how much living space 480 sq ft can provide.

One of my best friend’s husband, David, did most of the work. He’s actually a carpenter but also a “Jack of all trades” He coordinated the electrician, plumber, and other workers. The protect was begun in October 2021 and was completed in February 2022. Amazon.com proved to be an important source for many of my products as well as Overstock.com, Home Depot, Lowes, and Best Buy.

I’m considering building another one and would like to hear reviews from people who have purchased kits.

    That looks really nice. Though that bulgy couch and the bedding have to go. They look out of place – something very 1970s put into an otherwise modern home.
